Stand By Your Ape-Man

Only about two weeks late to be posted here, this was my entry in the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge bonus round themed "L'Amour":

"You can't shoot him, daddy!" Bobbi Jo screamed, brandishing her own rifle.  "He ain't no varmint, he's my boyfriend!" Sasquatch, meanwhile, slunk deeper into the shadows between the trees.  He never knew what to say during family disagreements.

After a moment's tense standoff, Bobbi Jo took off running into the forest after her lover.  She really thought her daddy would have taken the news - that he was going to be a grandfather - better.  

This got a lot of positive feedback in the comments from other contestants, but startlingly few votes.


  1. Great entry Bill. Love the composition and little background story you created. That's a seriously large gun Bobbi Jo is carrying :-)

    1. It's a huge gun, longer than she is tall. This was actually my second time buying Bobbi Jo - and they redesigned the mold in between, the first time I bought her the gun was a separate piece that had to be fitted and glued into the crook of her arm.

  2. I absolutely loved this, it really made me smile!
